I know the competition is a week old today, but I just have to say that I was impressed with everyone that competed and brought it over the course of the day. Everyone was great, but there are two groups that I want to talk about in particular, and those are Hoover and Riverside.
Hoover: Personally, I had you in Finals. I thought this show was the absolute best I have ever seen out of you. Keep progressing and don't let any results of a competition affect your confidence. You guys are improving at warp speed, and I couldn't be happier to see it. Great, great show and keep improving!
Riverside: Like Hoover, this year is the best I have seen out of you. Just keep improving. You guys are gonna make a splash in a few years, mark my words.
What a great effort from all of the competing schools! Thanks so much for traveling in inclement weather to compete at Music Fest! Everyone did such a great job! A huge special thanks to Marysville for helping in the clean up afterwords! What a classy thing to do!
I was completely floored with Marysville's performance in finals. I felt that the only schools that did better in finals were Marysville and Hurricane. All other groups had better shows in pre-lims. Congrats to Marysville!!! Such a great show!

Everyone coming to MusicFest should be aware that they are calling for anywhere from 2-6 inches of snow tomorrow through Sunday morning, so definitely be safe getting here, being here, and heading back home.
I could see Loveland doing very well at this competition. I saw them at Beavercreek and I thought they were awesome! Marysville was also very good when they performed at the Showcase a week ago. Should be a very interesting showdown.
